Content Guide

Types of Content

Feed Page

  • Announcements are meant to alert students of ongoings or news around campus or to nudge them to a certain action or behavior. The ability to add a link makes them great for anything that requires a call to action. Announcements are typically the most common type of content posted.
    • Example: Visit the Career Office to prepare for the upcoming career fairs. Provide a call to action to schedule an appointment.
    • Example: A unique campus event is being held in the next few days.
  • Polls are used to gauge students interest or satisfaction around campus or to nudge students towards a thoughtful mindset.
    • Example: An Admin is planning an event and wants to know if students would prefer bowling or skating.
    • Example: An Admin is creating a new campus resource and needs to know where students typically buy their textbooks.
    • Example: An Admin wants to create belonging and sense of belief, utilizing growth mindset (I.E. As you reflect back on semester, who do you most want to thank and what exactly would you thank them for?)

Events Page

  • Events are used to add any campus events or activities. Events can be manually created as well as automatically pulled in via RSS Feed. Persona-driven Events will appear on both the For You section of the Feed tab as well as on the Events tab. Events sent to all users will only appear on the Events tab.

    • Example: Universities can use Events to publish the Athletics calendar.

    • Example: A student organization is holding a philanthropy event.

Notifications

  • Notifications are high priority announcements. These will alert the students immediately via a push notification (in the case the student has push notifications turned on). Notifications can also integrate to campus emergency systems.

    • Example: Tomorrow is the last day to submit financial aid applications.

    • Example: Sending a Happy New Year note to all students.
